This isn't Islamic incompetence, it is deliberately orchestrated lies. Look up Pallywood on YouTube for more blatant lies.Mainstream media accepts it because it sells.

Reuters were victims

I don't think Reuters took part in this ("complicit", as the video puts it). I think they were used by Hezbollah propagandists. They reportedly took action against the photograph who doctored his picture, fired him and removed all his photos.
